The Wekiva State Park and Wekiva River Experience
See my Wekiva Paintings:
Small Landscape Paintings
I've just returned from the Wekiva State Park where I painted with other painters for a week, living in the park. There is no other place in Florida more beautiful. At sunset, the lake behind our cabins has a neon blue color with pinks, salmons and yellows in the sky. The dark pines show as ghostly blues and dark grays in front of the scene. It is the perfect winter place to be in Florida.
For the next two months I will be traveling, first to Walt Disney World for the annual International Flower and Garden Festival in Epcot. I'll be painting in the World Showcase March 26-28.
I'll be off to my favorite Florida location, Evinston, Florida for a week to paint the farms and ranches April 17-24. Our paintings will be for sale at the Wood and Swink in Evinston and at the University of Florida president's home for a gala opening and sale on April 24th. Proceeds benefit the Wood and Swink restoration. It is Florida's oldest working Post office. The paint out is sponsored by CTF
After Evinston, I'll be off to Winter Park for the annual Paint Out sponsoring the Albin Polasek Museum. What a beautiful museum!! I'm looking forward to painting there from April 25- May 2. Polasek
I'll see you at one of these places and look forward to each one.
